BBC Radiophonic Music cover

BBC Radiophonic Music, known as "The Pink Album", was the first time that Radiophonic Workshop music was released as an album.

[The Workshop's 10th anniversary in 1968] was noted by the release of the first full-length album of Workshop music, BBC Radiophonic Music, limited to the music of John Baker, Delia Derbyshire and David Cain [...] without the overly-familiar Doctor Who theme. [...] The review in Gramophone[1] compared Derbyshire to Xenakis in her ability to construct complex sound patterns.[2]

Curiosity

Delia signed copies of the Pink Album and put a mark next to Reading Your Letters, which is not hers. We don't know why.[3]
